Solihull tech business scoops national award

A SOLIHULL self-employment tech specialist is celebrating after picking up an award at the prestigious UK Business Tech Awards 2022.

Wise, based in the heart of Solihull, was named Tech Company of The Year (small) at the glamorous awards ceremony.

This award, coming less than three years after the company was founded, acts as a major milestone for the business which now employs over 75 people.

The UK Business Tech Awards, held every year in London, are designed to recognise the UK’s finest tech businesses and reward the innovative and exceptional applications of technology to transform and grow businesses.

Sifting through hundreds of entries, the judging panel noted that Wise had ‘demonstrated innovative thought in solving an important issue’ whilst also receiving ‘excellent funding results, clearly giving confidence in the company’s long-term future’.

Dan Richards, chief commercial officer at Wise, said: “We were absolutely thrilled to be a winner at this year’s UK Business Tech Awards, especially considering the incredible businesses we were competing alongside.

“As a business, we’ve been on an incredible journey over the last few years, bringing together some of the UK’s best technology talent under one roof in Solihull. Being recognised with this prestigious award is a great testament to the technology we have created over the past couple of years and the real impact this is having on self-employment across the UK.”
